Words Should Mean Something

By Sam Schwartz

Words should mean things. Let me explain.

Take mission statements, those corporate-slime covered, oh-so-saccharine sentences that find their way onto business cards and the weird brochures that companies have to advertise themselves.

By Kristen Santarin

We live in a world that is made up of various characters, each person with a background and identity unique to them alone. No two people on the planet are the same.

The Implications of Free Will

By Graham Everhart

Do you control what you do? That depends on your definition of “control.” I won’t go full Vsauce-Michael-Here on you, but free will is one of those concepts that makes less sense the more you think about it. Many religious groups and philosophers claim it exists. Many claim it doesn’t. I claim that it’s impossible to know for sure, but I can analyze its consequences.
